    Two of the main reasons are,

    Re: Rubberize trailer, other options?

    I agree with the above.

    Consider getting Cargo Tracks and Fittings with 2 - 4 tie-down ratchet straps to secure your load after packing.

    My wife couldn't find it on Facebook/Kamp Mal?

    If you are towing Mokopane might be better.

    Safety wise the Lephalale route might be better.

    If you are leaving Gauteng at 05:00 then rather avoid Mokopane route.

    Re: 2nd Spare wheel on a roof rack

    My spare is over the back axle so I get onto the rear wheel and lift the tyre into an upright position, I then step down onto the ground and lift it off.
